in renewable energy
for all, at any time
at any place.
WHAT WE BELIEVE IN
Renewable energy for everyone, everywhere.
In the future, we envision a world powered entirely by clean, sustainable energy. We believe that solar and wind can power all of our homes, vehicles and businesses via the electrical grid - while also feeding the production of green fuels to drive heavy industry and commercial transport.
Through the continual development and innovation of the last few decades, renewable energy investment is now the most cost-effective and sustainable choice. Solar PV is already the world’s cheapest electricity source, wind power will soon be less expensive than nuclear, coal- and gas-fired generation across Europe, and utility-scale batteries and zero-emission fuels are set to achieve cost parity within just ten years. To fully realise this sustainable future, the world needs to invest 1,000 billion Euro into renewable energy assets and electricity networks over the next three decades.
At 3E, we are accelerating the global energy transition by bringing new technology, innovation and services to the market - backed by two decades of experience.

Driving change for more than two decades
3E was established in 1999 by Werner Coppye, Geert Palmers, Luc De Gheselle and Luc Dewilde as a spin-off of IMEC (www.imec.be). The company started as a pioneering consultant, and over the last 20 years we have developed an expansive network of industry partners in renewable energy and energy efficiency that now spans across more than 60 countries. Since 2010, 3E has transformed into a complete renewable energy technology company thanks to investments from Impact Capital (Piet Colruyt), Werner Koninckx and Nuhma, further-accelerating our extensive suite of software and services.
